Senior officials killed in Malaysia helicopter crash

Ed-note, Sabba–Malaysia…again? Is Malaysia being targeted?
Malaysia War Crime Commission found israel guilty of war crimes back in 2013. The Jerusalem Post reported the news with an article entitled” Guess who finds israel guilty of genocide?” They almost laughed at it (did they really?): ” It’s a piece of news that’s too absurd to make the news – but by ignoring it we actually miss a good illustration of the bizarre extremes to which Jew-haters will go”.
That same tribunal had found G.W. Bush and Tony Blair guilty of war crimes in 2011.
In August 2014, a Malaysian couple decided to burn the israeli flag on their wedding day…
Former Prime Minister Dr. Mahathir (for more than 20 years) publicly said: “The Jews rule this world by proxy, they get others to fight and die for them… They have now gained control of the most powerful countries … This tiny community have become a world power.”

Juillet à Septembre 2014:
Obama: Malaysian jet was downed by missile fired by pro-Russian separatists The U.S. president said Vladimir Putin had the most power to reduce violence in east Ukraine and had chosen not to do so.
Le missile, c’est Poutine Le verdict de l’interprétation guerrière est tombé : la tragédie ayant frappé la Malaysian Airlines – la seconde en quatre mois – est l’œuvre du « terrorisme » perpétré par les « séparatistes prorusses » armés par la Russie, et Poutine en est le principal responsable. Fin de l’histoire. Quiconque pense autrement doit se taire. Pourquoi ? Parce que la CIA l’a dit.
L’art de la guerre : « Tragédie mondiale » du vol MH17 Moscou mis au banc des accusés par la « communauté internationale » (lire États-Unis et leurs alliés) ; les Ukrainiens russes stigmatisés comme terroristes; l’attention des médias focalisée sur la tragédie de l’avion, faisant passer au second plan la tragédie du massacre israélien des Palestiniens à Gaza.(…)
L’important est le résultat d’aujourd’hui : l’accusation à la Russie d’être responsable de la destruction voulue de l’avion malais (acte qui, pour Moscou, serait suicidaire) permet au président Obama d’avoir carte blanche du Congrès pour étendre la nouvelle guerre froide contre la Russie. Le congrès a en effet adopté, le 17 juillet, l’ « Acte de prévention de l’agression russe», qui garantit à Ukraine, Géorgie et Moldavie, le statut d’«alliés majeurs non-OTAN des États-Unis», autorisant le président à fournir à ces pays et à d’autres pays de l’Est, directement ou par l’intermédiaire de l’OTAN, le maximum d’aide militaire et économique en fonction anti-russe.

Those Ukrainians John McCain Wants to Arm Include Neo-Nazis « Give them the weapons they need »
C’est avoir une courte vue de les qualifier de néo-nazis sans aller plus loin. C’est essentialiste, c’est juste pou enfoncer le clou de la propagande infowars: « nazi = méchant ». (McCain affected by PTSD, needs psychiatric care: Madsen)
Les conspirationnistes détournent notre attention de ces faits et avec leurs théories saugrenues ils ne font que faire passer pour des délirants et des naïfs quiconque verrait quelque manipulation politique se profiler derrière cet événement étrange. Idem pour le 11 septembre: presque aucun « Truther » n’a fait le lien entre le 11 septembre et la conférence antiraciste de l’Onu à Durban tenue quatre jours auparavant, dans laquelle Israël avait été, comme d’habitude, vertement dénoncée pour son racisme inhumain et sa cruauté génocidaire. (Le 11 septembre et la guerre au terrorisme allait changer radicalement cette image négative d’Israël pour en faire un modèle à suivre, son Mur de séparation ethnique devenant une « mesure préventive antiterroriste », etc.)
La plupart des conspirationnistes du vol MH370 hurlent avec les loups en condamnant « l’incompétence du gouvernement de Malaisie », mais ils ne se doutent pas une seconde qu’en faisant cela ils sont en train de faire le jeu de l’opposition pro-américaine et pro-sioniste qui pourfend le gouvernement actuel de Malaisie et aimerait bien voir un « printemps malais » le renverser, comme c’est arrivé aux Philippines contre les Marcos…
“The world is finally feeling the frustration that we’ve been experiencing for years,” said Lee Ee May, a management consultant and a former aide to a Malaysian opposition politician.
Ms. Lee said she was embarrassed when the country’s defense minister, Hishammuddin Hussein, the scion of a powerful political family, rejected a reporter’s assertion on Wednesday that the search for the airplane had been disordered.
“It’s only confusion if you want it to be seen to be confusion,” Mr. Hishammuddin said at a news conference that unfolded before an international audience.
Malaysia’s government is in the spotlight due to its handling of the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, which disappeared just 40 minutes after leaving Kuala Lumpur en route to Beijing on March 8.
It’s an unusual situation for the country. Malaysia doesn’t usually make headlines — it’s not a huge tourist destination, like its neighbor Thailand, and it hasn’t had a recent disaster like the Philippines or Indonesia. Instead, Malaysia has mostly become known as a quiet success in Southeast Asia in recent years, where GDP per capita was well ahead of Thailand and Indonesia and the economy was expected to grow between 4.5 percent and 5.5 percent in 2014.
Now, with the Malaysian government facing scrutiny from all corners, everyone is beginning to wonder: Is there more to Malaysia than meets the eye?
Christopher Bollyn semble avoir été le premier à écrire à propos de cette dernière « conspiration », suggérant que l’avion stationné à Tel Aviv est un « duplicata » qui pourrait être utilisé pour organiser une « attaque terroriste » déguisée en se faisant passer pour l’avion disparu de Malaysia Airlines, à un certain moment dans l’avenir. Mais ceci n’est que pure spéculation. (…)
Je peux comprendre, dans une certaine mesure, que certaines personnes soient un peu remontées du fait qu’il y ait un avion 777-2H6ER de Malaysia Airlines stationnant en Israël, un pays dont le gouvernement et les agences de renseignement ont une histoire dans l’implication d’attaques terroriste sous « faux drapeau », mais imbriquer ceci dans une théorie selon laquelle les Israéliens vont utiliser cet avion pour faire « réapparaître » l’avion manquant en tant que partie d’une fausse attaque terroriste est un peu tiré par les cheveux, pour ne pas dire plus.

Le tribunal des crimes de guerre de Kuala Lumpur a jugé Israël coupable de crimes contre l’humanité et de génocide en novembre 2013. Le tribunal avait déjà reconnu coupable les présidents Bush et Blair de crimes contre l’humanité pour la guerre en Irak et les prisons de Guantanamo et Abu Ghraib. Le tribunal a été fondé par le président Mahathir Mohamad, qui condamne ouvertement le pouvoir juif et ses guerres par procuration.
« American politicians are scared stiff of the Jews because anybody who votes against the Jews will lose elections. The Jews in America are supporting the Jews in Israel. Israel and other Jews control the most powerful nation in the world. And that is what I mean [about Jews controlling the world by proxy]. I stand by that view. »
–Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, ex prime-minister of Malaysia and founder of the Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Commission, to the UK Guardian in 2005

Author Michael Collins Piper dedicated hos book THE GOLEM to Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, which he calls « The Father of Modern Malaysia and a Front-Line Warrior for World Peace ». He quotes Dr Mahathir Mohamad:
We must banish war as an option in the settlement of disputes and conflicts between nations; to recognize and define war as legitimized mass murder, as inhuman and uncivilized.’ I call upon the world to reject war totally and to accept peace as the true expression of the humaneness and nobility of humankind, the ultimate measure of the level of civilization humanity should strive for, should attain. In the name of democracy, freedom and God, the war criminals have waged and continue to wage wars of aggressions and commit heinous war crimes. In the name of peace, we must mount a global effort to prevent war criminals from waging wars and the slaughter of the innocents. We must be resolute. We must not flinch in the face of adversity. Our cause is just and victory is assured though the struggle will be long and arduous. God willing, peace will prevail. A journey of a thousand miles begins with the first steps. We have taken many steps. Let us march forward in this struggle to achieve true civilization, to criminalize war. —DR.MAHATHIR MOHAMAD
THE GOLEM: Chapter Twenty-Six
It’s Time to Wage War Against War:
Dr. Mahathir Mohamad Speaks Out
In June of 2006 (following an earlier visit in 2004) this author made a second trip to Malaysia at which time I participated as a guest of Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, the longtime former prime minister of that Southeast Asian republic, in the second formal ession of the Perdana Global Peace Organization (PGPO), founded by Dr. Mahathir in 2005.
The PGPO has urged a global campaign to have the conduct of war formally criminalized under international law and to make leaders who perpetrate wars, along with the organizations and businesses that support them, recognized as criminals by international law.
The special 2006, session of the peace forum focused on the theme: « The Middle East Agenda: Oil, Dollar Hegemony and Islam » and featured a diverse group of distinguished diplomats, scholars and others from around the globe who not only addressed the subject of the ongoing role of the United States and Britain and Israel in the problems of the Middle East—in particular the drive for war against Iran—but also the dangers of nuclear proliferation.
In his keynote address to the forum, Dr. Mahathir Mohamad noted that most people view war as « something that happens somewhere else to other people, » when, in fact, »war is about killing people—a test of the ability of nations to kill. »
Dr. Mahathir pointed out that, today, nations are looking for « new ways of killing, » demonstrating that « We are as brutal as ever. We have not really become civilized. »
However, he said, « War is not a solution to any conflict between nations. War is a crime. We need to work in the longterm for war to be seen as a crime. People who wage war should be treated as criminals. »
Although Dr. Mahathir believes that it is vital for a nation to have a national defense system, having arms doesn’t mean that a nation is planning for war. He insists that nations should settle their differences by means other than war.
« In war, » he said, « the winner is ‘right.’ The loser—even if he is defending his country—is wrong, and he may be hanged. »
And in light of the current U.S. claim that it conducted war against Iraq to bring democracy to that country, Dr. Mahathir asked, »What is this ‘democracy’ that the neo-conservatives are promoting? » pointing out that even the new leaders of Iraq are unable to venture out of their protected zones. « Are the people of Iraq free today? » he asked.
« It is undemocratic to kill people to make them accept democracy, » he said. And now the United States is considering going to war against Iran, a nation that has a democratically elected president.
Of the current United States domination of the United Nations Security Council, Dr. Mahathir said that this is « a very undemocratic way of sponsoring democracy. »
Dr. Mahathir asserted that it is time that voters in all countries insist that candidates for high office give a pledge that they are against war.
World War IV is already here, said Dr. Mahathir, pointing out that it was not he who coined the term. Instead, it was such leading neo-conservative voices as Norman Podhoretz, the longtime editor of the American Jewish Committee’s Commentary magazine and Dr. Earl Filford of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies, who declared that World War IV is upon us, echoed by Efraim Halevy, the former chief of Israel’s Mossad, and others.
Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld issued a Quadrennial Defense Review Report, dated March 6, 2006, saying that the war will be a « long war » that will last for « years to come. » Even Dr. Mahathir pointed out, 350,000 American forces are deployed in 130 countries. Rumsfeld was echoed by President George Bush who declared that the United States was « in the early years of a long struggle » against what he referred to as « a new totalitarian ideology. »
The origins of this war, said Dr. Mahathir, can be found in a policy paper drafted by neo-conservative strategist Paul Wolfowitz who, in 1992, called for the projection of U.S. military power with Islam as its target. And now Iran is the latest target. In the same vein as the Iraq Liberation Act of 1998, the U.S. Congress has now passed the Iran Freedom Support Act.
And the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan warship is now positioning itself for conflict. And it’s a very strong possibility that nuclear weapons will be used.
Dr. Mahathir said frankly: « The war criminal Bush has declared that all options are on the table, » including nuclear weapons. And yet, »Iran’s efforts count for nothing, » including the fact that Iran is a signatory to the Nuclear Non- Proliferation Treaty.The warlike rhetoric and threats coming from President Bush, said the former Malaysian prime minister, « are strong words from the president of the most powerful nation in the world. He has already shown us what he is capable of in the war against Iraq. We must put a stop to this plans and stop the killings. »
Expressing his sympathy for the American soldiers who must fight the wars being waged by the Bush regime, Dr. Mahathir pointed out that American lives will also be endangered endangered in the war against Iran:
« It is the ordinary man who will pay for the price of this folly, but Bush and Prime Minister Tony Blair are protected and safe from harm, » noted Dr. Mahathir. However, he said, « Peace loving peoples must mete out justice. The international community must summon the political will to bring these war criminals to justice. »
Dr. Mahathir directly confronted Bush and Blair: »They should not be addressed by any honorific. They should not be called President Bush and Prime Minister Blair. Instead, we should refer to them as War Criminal Bush’ and ‘War Criminal Blair.’ These are the war criminals. Have a good look at them. »
Of Bush, Dr. Mahathir said: « This is a man who told lies. The whole nation knows he told lies. »And today the United States is surviving on a war economy It is a bankrupt country and its currency has no backing. But billions of dollars are being spent on weapons for wars that need not be fought.
While the mass media in the United States proclaims former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon as a man of peace, contrast that, said Dr.Mahathir, with the way the media has treated Iranian President Ahmadinejad and former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein.
Ultimately, Dr. Mahathir asked: « Will Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and the other war criminals be taken before an international tribunal » to be held responsible for the war crimes that are even now being committed in Iraq?
The November 2005 massacre at Haditha—the murder of innocent people—has only recently been exposed. But, said Dr. Mahathir, it was « not a random event. »
And referring to the so-called « preemptive » war that the United States waged against Saddam Hussein in Iraq (and which is being pondered against Iran), Dr. Mahathir commented, and, it might be added, only partially in jest: « Maybe if I were still in office, they might have had a preemptive war against me. »
In reference to the Israeli-Palestinian dispute and the U.S. role therein, he said that « No way can you have America as an honest broker—a dishonest broker, maybe. » He compared the role of the United States in the world today as akin to a situation « when the police chief is breaking the law. » The analogy was all too accurate.
In the end, Dr. Mahathir urged all good people who oppose war and imperialism to come together and, he said, »God willing—peace will prevail. »
Let us pray that Dr. Mahathir’s dream becomes reality.
THE GOLEM: CONCLUSION
In the end, all of this globalist saber-rattling in the name of some ill-defined form of « democracy » as divined by George W. Bush’s philosophical mentor, Natan Sharansky, is hardly winning America any new friends abroad. If anything, it is making America more enemies and laying the groundwork for foreign policy disasters of the future..
In the meantime, Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, often described as the « Father of Modern Malaysia » and long respected as a voice for the developing countries, is not backing down in the face of these war-like provocations.
He has been speaking out—with passion and with candor.
In a 2005 interview with Britain’s Guardian newspaper, the longtime Malaysian prime minister (who retired in 2003) declared the Bush administration a « rogue regime » and denounced Bush ally, British Prime Minister Tony Blair, as a « proven liar » for having propagated disinformation put forth by Bush and his pro-Israel policy advisors.
The outspoken Malaysian, who is highly regarded throughout the Third World, created a major stir in 2003 when—in the course of an extended lecture before an international gathering of leaders from Muslim countries—he stated that « Jews rule the world by proxy, » only one brief comment in a lengthy discourse, but one that was enough to incite a global media frenzy. However, Dr. Mahathir told the Guardian that he was not prepared to withdraw his remarks. He said:
[American] politicians are scared stiff of the Jews because anybody who votes against the Jews will lose elections. The Jews in America are supporting the Jews in Israel. Israel and other Jews control the most powerful nation in the world.
And that is what I mean [about Jews controlling the world]. I stand by that view.
Dr. Mahathir’s pointed comments about the behavior of the United States, particularly vis-a-vis its engagement in the Middle East, reflect not only Muslim opinion, but growing opinion in Europe and elsewhere. Dr. Mahathir told the Guardian:
The U.S. is the most powerful nation. It can ignore the world if it wants to do anything. It breaks international law. It arrests people outside their countries; it charges them under American law. It kills them …
That is terror [and] the U.S. is as guilty of terrorism as the people who crashed their planes into the buildings … Bush doesn’t understand the rest of the world. He thinks everybody should be a neocon like him.
Coming from one of the world’s foremost Muslim leaders—and one who has urged his fellow Muslims to reject terrorism and extremism— Dr. Mahathir’s assessment of the declared U.S. war on terrorism is particularly pointed and a very real caution to American policy-makers who are wedded to the interests of Israel:
Even if you get bin Laden, you can’t be sure there won’t be another bin Laden. You cannot get terrorists to sign a peace treaty.
The only way to beat terror is to go for the basic causes.
They don’t blow themselves up for no reason, they’re angry, they’re frustrated.
And why are they angry? Look at the Palestinian situation. Fifty years after you created the state of Israel, things are going from bad to worse.
If you don’t settle that, there will be no end to the war on terror. For how long are you going to go on examining people’s shoes?
Lest anyone dismiss Dr. Mahathir’s comments as « a conspiracy theory from the Muslim world, » recall that, as noted earlier, the New York-based Forward, the eminent Jewish newspaper, reported on May 11, 2005 that Barry Jacobs of the American Jewish Committee had charged that there are high-ranking officials in the U.S. intelligence community who are hostile to Israel and waging war against pro-Israel lobbyists and their neoconservative allies in the Bush administration.
Forward reported that Jacobs believes, in Forward’s summary, that « the notion that American Jews and Pentagon neo-conservatives conspired to push the United States into war against Iraq, and possibly also against Iran, is pervasive in Washington’s intelligence community. »
In fact, Jacobs’ concerns are valid as we have demonstrated quite thoroughly in this volume. There is a growing concern about the vast influence of the Jewish lobby in America—as there should be.
The point is that the policies of George W. Bush are not just a cause of concern to those in the Arab and Muslim worlds, or in Russia, China or even Venezuela. There are many good Americans (including those in high places) who see real danger in these policies. And there are many people around the world who recognize that those Americans share their concerns.
s one effort to throw a roadblock in the way of imperialism and wars to advance imperialism, Malaysia’s Dr. Mahathir assembled the Perdana Global Peace Organization which we referenced earlier in this work. On December 17, 2005 Dr. Mahathir and those attending a special forum of the organization, announced the Kuala Lumpur Initiative to Criminalize War. As its name implies, the initiative and the efforts to promote its message constitute a serious call for a global drive to make the conduct of war a criminal act. The initiative reads as follows:
THE KUALA LUMPUR INITIATIVE TO CRIMINALIZE WAR
The Kuala Lumpur Global Peace Forum of concerned peoples from all five continents
UNITED in the belief that peace is the essential condition for the survival and well-being of the human race,
DETERMINED to promote peace and save succeeding generations from the scourge of war,
OUTRAGED over the frequent resort to war in the settlement of disputes between nations,
DISTURBED that militarists are preparing for more wars,
TROUBLED that use of armed force increases insecurity
TERRIFIED that the possession of nuclear weapons and the imminent risk of nuclear war will lead to the annihilation of life on earth.
To achieve peace we now declare that:
• Wars increasingly involve the killing of innocent people and are, therefore, abhorrent and criminal.
• Killings in war are as criminal as the killings within societies in times of peace.
• Since killings in peace time are subject to the domestic law of crime, killings in war must likewise be subject to the international law of crimes. This should be so irrespective of whether these killings in war are authorized or permitted by domestic law.
• All commercial, financial, industrial and scientific activities that aid and abet war should be criminalised.
• All national leaders who initiate aggression must be subjected to the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court.
• All nations must strengthen the resolve to accept the purposes and principles of the United Nations Charter and institute methods to settle international disputes by peaceful means and to renounce war.
•Armed force shall not be used except when authorised by a Resolution passed by two-thirds majority of the total embership of the General Assembly of the United Nations.
•All legislators and all members of Government must affirm their belief in peace and pledge to strive for peace.
• Political parties all over the world must include peace as one of their principal objectives.
•Non-Governmental Organisations committed to the promotion of peace should be set up in all nations.
•Public servants and professionals, in particular in the medical, legal, educational and scientific fields, must promote peace and campaign actively against war.
•The media must actively oppose war and the incitement to war and consciously promote the peaceful settlement of international disputes.
• Entertainment media must cease to glorify war and violence and should instead cultivate the ethos of peace • All religious leaders must condemn war and promote peace.
To these ends the Forum resolves to establish a permanent Secretariat in Kuala Lumpur to:
IMPLEMENT this Initiative.
OPPOSE policies and programmes that incite war. SEEK the cooperation of [non-governmental organizations] worldwide to achieve the goals of this Initiative.
merican nationalists—America’s real patriots—share the spirit of the Kuala Lumpur Initiative. And Americans need to rally together—and with others around the globe—to stand in the way of the imperial warmongers. We need to take a very careful second look before « rallying around the flag » and jumping on the pro-war bandwagon—or bandwagons—being assembled before our eyes.
George Bush is supposed to leave office in January of 2009. However, there will be others who will attempt to further the dangerous imperial policies spawned during the Bush era of lies and misrule. And it is the job of all good Americans—and their many friends around the world—to work together to bring these intriguers to their knees.

Note de l’éditeur Global Research
La procédure engagée contre l’État d’Israël était diligentée par la Commission des Crimes de guerre de Kuala Lumpur.
Commission Crimes de guerre de Kuala Lumpur (KLWCC) c/État d’Israël
Les membres de la Commission des Crimes de guerre de Kuala Lumpur : Professeur Michel Chossudovsky, Dr Denis Halliday, Mr Musa Ismail, Dr Zulaiha Ismail, Dr Yaacob Merican, Dr Hans von Sponeck.
Travaillant de concert avec leurs homologues malaisiens, les membres de la Commission, le Dr Denis Halliday, ancien secrétaire général adjoint des Nations-Unies, et le Professeur Michel Chossudovsky, directeur du Centre de recherches sur la mondialisation, ont été présents à Kuala Lumpur pendant toute la procédure.
Ce processus judiciaire important a été peu couvert par les médias occidentaux. Global Research publiera plusieurs articles à la suite de ce jugement historique contre l’État d’Israël.
Michel Chossudovsky, Kuala Lumpur, 25 novembre 2013
Kuala Lumpur : Le tribunal des crimes de guerre de Kuala Lumpur (KLWCT) a jugé aujourd’hui l’ancien général de l’armée israélienne, Amos Yaron, et l’État d’Israël coupables de crimes contre l’humanité et de génocide pour le massacre de Palestiniens dans les camps de réfugiés de Sabra et Chatila à Beyrouth, en 1982.
Le président de KLWCT, Tan Sri Lamin Yohd Yunus, qui dirigeait un groupe de sept membres, a déclaré que le tribunal était convaincu au-delà de tout doute raisonnable que les deux défendeurs étaient coupables des chefs d’accusation retenus contre eux.
Les autres juges étaient Tunku Sofiah Jewa, le Professeur Salleh Buang, le Professeur mérite Datuk, le Docteur Shad Saleem Faruqi, Datuk Saari Yusof, John Philpot et Tunku Intan Mainura.
Donnant lecture à haute voix pendant près de trois heures du jugement rendu, Lamin a déclaré que le tribunal avait ordonné que des indemnités à la hauteur du préjudice irréparable et des blessures, des douleurs et des souffrances subis par le demandeur, représentant des victimes de crimes de guerre, leur soient versées.
« Même s’il ne perd jamais de vue sa nature de simple tribunal de conscience, sans réelle force exécutoire, ce tribunal juge que les témoins dans cette affaire ont droit, en toute justice, au paiement ou à réparations par les deux parties condamnées » a-t-il dit.
Lamin a exprimé l’espoir que forts de ces conclusions du tribunal, les témoins, qui sont aussi les victimes en l’affaire, trouveront dans un avenir proche un État ou une entité judiciaire internationale capable et disposé à exercer leur compétence pour faire exécuter le verdict du tribunal à l’encontre des deux parties condamnées.
Le tribunal a également ordonné que sa décision soit soumise à la Commission des Crimes de guerre pour faciliter la détermination et la perception des indemnités par le demandeur, pour les victimes de crimes de guerre.
Lamin a noté que le tribunal était pleinement conscient que son verdict était, de par sa nature, purement déclaratif et n’avait aucune force exécutoire.
« Ce que nous pouvons faire… c’est recommander au KLWCT de soumettre cette conclusion de condamnation par le tribunal, avec les actes de ces procédures, au procureur général de la Cour pénale internationale, de même qu’aux Nations-Unies et au Conseil de sécurité des Nations-Unies » a déclaré le juge.
Il a aussi déclaré que le tribunal recommandait que les noms des deux parties condamnées soient inscrits et inclus au registre des Criminels de guerre de la Commission et qu’ils soient, en conséquence, publiés.
Yaron a été inculpé pour son implication directe en sa qualité de général commandant dans le massacre de Sabra et Chatila. C’était la première fois que Yaron était inculpé pour crimes de guerre.
La deuxième accusation était contre l’État d’Israël pour crime de génocide et crimes de guerre contre les Palestiniens.
Les accusations étaient le résultat de plaintes reçues par KLWCT de victimes de Palestine (bande de Gaza et Cisjordanie) et des camps de réfugiés de Sabra et Chatila au Liban, l’an dernier.
Au cours de ce procès de six jours, le tribunal a entendu 11 témoins à charge, dont des Palestiniens de lignée musulmane et chrétienne, de même qu’un chirurgien malaisien, le Dr Ang Swee Chai, qui exerçait au camp au moment du massacre.
Six des témoins ont attesté auprès de KLWCT tandis que les cinq autres ont communiqué leur témoignage par Skype.
Le procureur principal, le Pr Gurdial S. Nijar, a qualifié le verdict d’« important » alors qu’il marque la première fois que l’État d’Israël est reconnu coupable de génocide.
Il a déclaré que le jugement d’aujourd’hui sera soumis au procureur général de la Cour pénale internationale, aux Nations-Unies et au Conseil de sécurité des Nations unies pour une action ultérieure.
Et d’ajouter que le jugement sera également publié et communiqué aux gouvernements à travers le monde pour permettre à tous les États d’exercer leur compétence sur le génocide.

Traduction : JPP pour BDS France
Until now, Israel has been getting away with anything it likes. A series of revolutions and counter-revolutions in the Arabic world has driven it into chaos, and seems to have pushed the Palestinian issue off the international agenda for good.
And yet Malaysia, a predominantly Muslim country, has now called a tribunal for war crimes and produced a genocide ruling – against whom?
Not against Assad, as one might have expected, but against Israel, the state that considers itself to be beyond the jurisdiction of any court or tribunal.
In Hamlet, the message that the king killed his brother to marry his widow and seize the throne is delivered by the murdered king’s spirit – which literally means by someone who cannot testify in court. As a result, Prince Hamlet spends a long time tormenting himself about whether he should believe the spirit and avenge his father. After that, he undertakes a smart move – asking a troupe of actors to stage a play reenacting his father’s murder, while he watches the murderer’s reaction. At the end of the play, everyone dies, but Hamlet has gotten his revenge.
That’s how people’s justice usually works – it takes a long time, it’s messy and ultimately useless from a rational viewpoint. It would have been much more rational for Prince Hamlet to pay due honor to the new king and his new wife, Hamlet’s mother, pray for his deceased father, marry Ophelia and have lots of children, then inherit the throne in due time and just keep on living…
The spectators watch how the prince’s world and values are shattered to the ground. The father’s spirit has its word. The actors have played out their play, and the murderer has been betrayed by his reaction.
For the first time, an international war crimes tribunal has charged the State of Israel of genocide, an unprecedented event, as so far no international court or tribunal has ever delivered a verdict against Israel to date.
The International Tribunal convened in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Israel refused to send any representatives. The Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Tribunal has no official ties to the UN and acknowledges that it has not authority to deliver punishment. Opinions differ on the subject of its jurisdiction, and the only sanction it has in its power is to enter the name and title of the party found guilty in the Tribunal’s registry and announce it publicly to the world. In 2011, the tribunal found George Bush and Tony Blair guilty of crimes against peace, crimes against humanity, and genocide as a result of their roles in the Iraq War.
It seems that one could just as well ignore this tribunal; much like Israel ignores the condemning UN resolutions, protests, severed diplomatic relationships and all other kinds of protests against the military actions and acts of violence applied against the Palestinians on a daily basis. However, a detailed trial like this indicates that the mechanism has been set in motion, which will have consequences for the entire world, not just for Israel or the Middle East.
The International Tribunal is part of the Kuala Lumpur Commission on War Crimes; however, these two institutions are not part of Malaysia’s judicial system, even though they employ judges and prosecutors of Malaysian background. Israel has no agreements signed with this or any other international court. Yet the Tribunal acts on the basis of the UN Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide of 1948, which was signed and ratified by Israel. And this very signature, Israel’s membership in the UN and the fact that Israel owes its very existence to the UN and to the condemnation of genocide against Jews in the course of the World War II – all this at the very least gives us the right to challenge and discuss whether Israel’s own actions could fall into the category of genocide.
Interestingly, the USA has been refusing to sign this document for 37 years, having reasonable fears that many lawyers would want to charge the USA itself with genocide of the Indians and African slaves, as well as the Japanese, the Koreans, the Vietnamese and many others. Israel, it its turn, did not foresee that the very convention it pushed the world to adopt after the war will one day be used against it. The very formation of the State of Israel was made possible by the agreement of the victorious powers to acknowledge that Jews were victims of genocide carried out by Nazi Germany and that only having a nation state of its own can guarantee them proper protection.
“The victims of genocide became themselves the source of it.” This is how Hedi Epstein sees the essence of the ruling against Israel. A German Jew who survived WWII, she lost her parents to a concentration camp. Epstein was a prosecution witness in the Nuremberg Trials. And in 1982, she learned that the Israeli Army occupied Lebanon and provoked mass executions in the Sabra and Shatila Palestinian refugee camps. From that moment on, Epstein and hundreds of other Jews embarked on an anti-military and anti-Zionist campaign. However, Israel has refused to listen to their voices. They were labeled “self-hating” Jews and banned from the country which, incidentally, announced itself to be the homeland of all Jews in the world. Israel remained deaf to their warning that the Jews who survived genocide do not wish Israel to be committing genocidal crimes against the Palestinian people in their name.
Israel was convinced that the US would never cease to provide it with military and political assistance, so it had nothing to worry about. The Jewish “weirdos” are free to organize as many useless marches and “freedom flotillas” as they wish; no one will dare to find Israel guilty.
And now Israel has received its first wake-up call.
The hearings on the genocide lawsuit started in August 2013. But the news soon faded into the background as the media extensively covered the mass shooting of hundreds of Egyptians who disagreed with President Morsi’s arrest and the growing tensions around Syria due to a possible American missile strike.
On November 20-25, the final stage of the proceedings took place, initiated by a group of Palestinians, who reported a number of incidents.
The first one involved Israeli soldiers who killed 29 members of the extended Samouni family in the Zeitoun neighborhood of the Gaza Strip during the 22-day Operation Cast Lead in 2008 and 2009.
This is the most notorious crime against Palestinians over the last few years. Judge Goldstone incorporated it into his report, which he submitted to the UN after the operation was over.
The Samounis were a large family of peaceful farmers. None of them had ever participated in armed resistance. They were some of the few Palestinians who got on well with the Israeli settlers and they were frustrated by the removal of the settlements from the Gaza Strip.
In January 2009, an Israeli helicopter landed on their field. A few gunmen demanded that the Samounis turn in the Hamas militants to them. The next thing they did was bring the whole family under one roof and shoot them down dead, including the infants. Those who survived were found under the bodies of their relatives.
One of the survivors was the children’s mother. She repeatedly tried to get a criminal case started in various courts of law, but failed to get any compensation or apologies from Israel.
The second story revolved around the mass shooting of women and children in the Sabra and Shatila camps in Lebanon in 1982.
Other incidents included:
– lethal firing of teargas canisters and rubber bullets by Israeli Defense Forces that resulted in the deaths of unarmed civilians during the Intifada campaigns and subsequent protests;
– intensive, indiscriminate aerial bombing and artillery shelling of civilian quarters in the Gaza Strip in 2008;
– a university student who was shot without warning at a peaceful protest by an Israeli sniper, firing a fragmentary bullet that caused extensive and permanent damage to his internal organs;
– a Christian resident of the West Bank who was repeatedly imprisoned and tortured on grounds of subversion;
– a female resident of Nablus who suffered mental anxiety due to her imprisonment and subsequent social ostracism;
– a Palestinian physician who conducted studies on the psychological trauma inflicted, particularly on children, as result of constant intimidation, massive violence and state terror during and following the second Intifada; and
– Expert witness Paola Manduca, an Italian chemist and toxicologist, who found extreme levels of toxic contamination of the soil and water across the Gaza Strip, caused by Israeli weapons made of heavy metals and cancer-causing compounds.
The Tribunal found the State of Israel guilty of genocide of the Palestinian people in each of these cases, blaming former general Amos Yaron for the Sabra and Shatila massacre.
The Tribunal’s verdict reads as follows:
“The Tribunal is satisfied, beyond reasonable doubt, that the first defendant, [General] Amos Yaron, is guilty of crimes against humanity and genocide, and the second defendant, the State of Israel, is guilty of genocide.”
Even though the Israeli authorities ignored the summons, several highly experienced lawyers were appointed by the Tribunal to represent Israel.
So far we can only see separate elements without fully comprehending the full picture. There are several things worth noting here.
Israel’s case wasn’t brought before the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague; in fact, it wasn’t a European court at all. In Europe, the guilt for failing to save the Jews from genocide 70 years ago is still alive and associated with Israel. Hearing this case in the Malaysian tribunal sends a message to the whole world that Israel should be treated like any other state, like Rwanda, Serbia, Libya or Cambodia.
The fact that the Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Tribunal condemned Israel is hardly surprising – Malaysia actively supports the Palestinians. In early 2013 the Malaysian prime minister visited the Gaza Strip – there aren’t many political leaders who can afford to make such a provocative step.
Malaysian Islam is similar to that of the Muslim Brotherhood, an organization that suffered such a crushing political defeat in Egypt. Malaysia’s ex-leader, Mahathir Mohamad, is a very influential figure in the Muslim world, especially among Muslim Brotherhood supporters, specifically in the part of the Muslim establishment that’s close to Britain.
Malaysia is even more determined to get revenge for the damage the Muslim Brotherhood sustained than Turkey, so this influential political faction dealt their opponents a glancing, but painful blow. It’s the first time an international tribunal convicted not individual generals, but the State of Israel of genocide. Israel’s main weapon has been turned against it.
It’s also important to note that a year ago Henry Kissinger, a key figure in US politics and architect of the Middle East peace deal, unexpectedly said that he perused a report by 16 American intelligence agencies which arrived at the conclusion that in 10 years’ time there will be no more Israel. The report itself, as well as Kissinger’s comment, can only be viewed as proof that a certain section of the American political elite intends to finish Project Israel. Otherwise, they would’ve kept the report under wraps and started working on a plan to save Israel. And most importantly, if saving Israel was on their agenda, no tribunal would be hearing this case.
Moreover, most of the Israel’s supporters wanted to believe that almost three years of revolutions in the Arab world and two years of fighting in Syria have pushed the Palestinian issue to the sidelines. Israel rejoiced that the focus shifted from the Palestinian issue, which united everyone, to the Syrian conflict, which became a bone of contention for the entire world.
Contrary to Israel’s expectations of two months ago, the Tribunal is not trying Assad for crimes against the Syrian people. Instead, it is trying Israel for genocide of the Palestinians. All of a sudden, Israel has lost its momentum. The Palestinians are back in the political spotlight, and the trap designed to lure Assad has turned into a trap for Israel.
Last but not least, many pundits rushed to argue that both the rise to power of the Muslim Brotherhood and their fall is all the doing of the US. The veteran commentators would say that those who are to blame for the toppling of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt will not go unpunished by the US and UK. The Israeli agents had put too much effort into cajoling major governments to support the Sisi-led coup to oust Mubarak and ignore the 3,000 deaths caused by the junta and the lies of the world media about the Muslim Brotherhood allegedly burning down the Coptic churches. Encouraged by the UK and Obama, full of arrogance and reluctance to reach any kind of compromise, Israel paved its own way to the genocide verdict.
Right now, Israel’s supporters are acting as though the Kuala Lumpur verdict can be neglected. But it won’t be long before they realize how dramatic the situation actually is: were the court to be situated in Europe, Israel would have lobbied its way out of the trial. But it did not reach as far as Kuala Lumpur. The precedent has been set.
Global Research, November 26, 2013
“The perpetrators had committed acts against the Palestinians, with intent to kill, cause serious bodily or mental harms and deliberately inflict conditions of life calculated to bring about the physical destruction of the Palestinians as a whole or in part.”
“The Tribunal recommends to the War Crimes Commission to give the widest international publicity to this conviction and grant of reparations, as these are universal crimes for which there is a responsibility upon nations to institute prosecutions.
The Tribunal deplores the failure of international institutions to punish the State of Israel for its crimes and its total lack of respect of International Law and the institutions of the United Nations.”
THE KUALA LUMPUR WAR CRIMES TRIBUNAL
20 – 25 NOVEMBER 2013
Case No. 3 – CHG – 2013
The Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Commission
Case No. 4 – CHG – 2013
The Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Commission
The State of Israel
The Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Tribunal (Tribunal) reconvened on 20 November 2013 to hear two charges against Amos Yaron (first Defendant) and the State of Israel (second Defendant). The first Defendant was charged with war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide, whilst the second Defendant was charged with the crime of genocide and war crimes.
The charge against the first Defendant is as follows –
“The Defendant Amos Yaron perpetrated War Crimes, Crimes Against Humanity, and Genocide in his capacity as the Commanding Israeli General in military control of the Sabra and Shatila refugee camps in Israeli occupied Lebanon in September of 1982 when he knowingly facilitated and permitted the large-scale Massacre of the Residents of those two camps in violation of the Hague Regulations on Land Warfare of 1907; the Fourth Geneva Convention of 1949; the 1948 Genocide Convention; the Nuremberg Charter (1945), the Nuremberg Judgment (1946), and the Nuremberg Principles (1950); customary international law, jus cogens, the Laws of War, and International Humanitarian Law”
The charge against the second Defendant [State of Israel] is as follows –
“From 1948 and continuing to date the State of Israel (hereafter ‘the Defendant’) carried out against the Palestinian people a series of acts namely killing, causing serious bodily harm and deliberately inflicting conditions of life calculated to bring about physical destruction.
The conduct of the Defendant was carried out with the intention of destroying in whole or in part the Palestinian people. These acts were carried out as part of a manifest pattern of similar conduct against the Palestinian people.
These acts were carried out by the Defendant through the instrumentality of its representatives and agents including those listed in Appendices 1 and 2.
Such conduct constitutes the Crime of Genocide under international law including the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of Genocide 1948 (‘the Genocide Convention’) in particular Article II and punishable under Article III of the said Convention.
It also constitutes the crime of genocide as stipulated in Article 10 of the Charter of the Kuala Lumpur Foundation to Criminalise War.
Such conduct by the Defendant as an occupying power also violates customary international law as embodied in the Hague Convention of 1907 Respecting the Laws and Customs of War on Land, and the Fourth Geneva Convention of 1949.
Such conduct also constitutes War Crimes and Crimes against Humanity under international law.”
The charges (together with the particulars of the charges) had been duly served on the Defendants, and were read in open court by the Registrar as these proceedings commenced.
Neither Defendant was present in these proceedings, but both were represented by the Amicus Curiae-Defence Team.
The Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Commission (KLWCC) versus the State of Israel
The proceedings directed against the State of Israel were led by the Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Commission.
Members of the Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Commission (KLWCC) are:
Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad (Chairman), Prof. Michel Chossudovsky, Dr. Denis Halliday, Mr. Musa Ismail, Dr. Zulaiha Ismail, Dr. Yaacob Merican, Dr. Hans von Sponeck.
Working in liaison with their Malaysian counterparts, commissioners Dr. Denis Halliday, former Assistant Secretary General of the United Nations and Prof. Michel Chossudovsky, Director of the Centre for Research on Globalization were present in Kuala Lumpur throughout the proceedings.
This important judicial process has received very little coverage in the Western media. Global Research will be publishing several reports following this historic judgment against the State of Israel.
2 Prosecution’s Case
The Prosecution’s case against the first Defendant is that the first Defendant had committed War Crimes, Crimes Against Humanity, and Genocide in his capacity as the Commanding Israeli General in military control of the Sabra and Shatila refugee camps in Israeli-occupied Lebanon in September of 1982 when he knowingly facilitated and permitted the large-scale Massacre of the Residents of those two camps. These crimes were in violation of, inter alia, the Fourth Geneva Convention of 1949, the 1948 Genocide Convention, jus cogens, International Humanitarian Law; and Articles 9, 10, and 11 of the Charter of the Kuala Lumpur Foundation to Criminalise War.
The Prosecution’s case against the second Defendant is that from 1948 and continuing to date the State of Israel had systematically carried out against the Palestinian people a series of acts namely killing, causing serious bodily harm and deliberately inflicting conditions of life calculated to bring about physical destruction – with the intention of destroying in whole or in part the Palestinian people.
These acts constitute the Crime of Genocide under international law including the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of Genocide 1948 (‘the Genocide Convention’) in particular Article II and punishable under Article III of the said Convention. It also constitutes the crime of genocide as stipulated in Article 10 of the Charter of the Kuala Lumpur Foundation to Criminalise War.
In his opening statement, the Chief Prosecutor Prof Gurdial Singh said that the Prosecution will adduce evidence to prove the counts in the indictment through oral and written testimonies of victims, witnesses, historical records, narrative in books and authoritative commentaries, resolutions of the United Nations and reports of international bodies.
6. The Defence case
Mr. Jason Kay Kit Leon of the Amicus Curiae-Defence Team submitted that in the charges against the two Defendants, the Prosecution had listed war crimes, crimes against humanity and crimes against peace. Apparently the Prosecution had abandoned these charges, concentrating only on genocide.
He said that the offence of genocide is defined in Article 2 of the Genocide Convention 1948, whilst the OED defines it simply as “the deliberate killing of a large group of people, especially those of a particular nation or ethnic group”.
He submitted that the charge of genocide is unique; it means that you don’t like a group, you kill them; you kill them in a grand manner. Genocide means that at the end of the act, you have a lesser number of victims than before the genocide started.
He further submitted that when one talks of “massive killing”, it is many hundreds of thousands to millions of people. To suggest that an isolated event, the unfortunate murder of 3,000 people (Sabra and Shatila) is the same as massive killing is almost disrespectful of the true horror of massive killing (as in Rwanda, where 800,000 people were killed in 100 days).
With regard to the Kahan Report, the Amicus Curiae-Defence Team said that it also identified other people as being responsible, with two other names other than Yaron still alive. The question is why only Yaron was charged? Why was Defence Minister Ariel Sharon spared?
He also submitted that the PLO had repeatedly violated the July 1981 cease-fire agreement. By June 1982, when the IDF went into Lebanon, the PLO had made life in northern Israel intolerable through its repeated shelling of Israeli towns.
On Cast Lead, the Amicus Curiae-Defence Team submitted that the IDF had come out with two reports. The point is if you are going to kill people nilly willy, you do not report it.
On the issue of the wall, the Amicus Curiae-Defence Team submitted that the primary consideration is one of security of the Israeli settlers. The State of Israel has a duty to defend their lives, safety and well-being.
On the issue of checkpoints, the Amicus Curiae-Defence Team said countries have a right to immigration laws. With regard to Plan Dalet, the Amicus Curiae-Defence Team said that it is subject to divergent opinions, with historians on one side asserting that it was entirely defensive, while other historians assert that the plan aimed at an ethnic cleansing.
4. Prosecution’s closing submission
In his closing submission, the Chief Prosecutor said that he had called 11 witnesses (some of whom had testified through Skype), tendered 15 exhibits and furnished several documents and reports to the Tribunal during the course of the proceedings.
He urged the Tribunal to bear in mind that this is a Tribunal of Conscience and the case before it is an extraordinary case, which Winston Churchill used to call as a “crime without a name”.
He said that the Prosecution had provided evidence of facts which, examined as a whole, will show that the perpetrators had committed acts against the Palestinians, with intent to kill, cause serious bodily or mental harms and deliberately inflict conditions of life calculated to bring about the physical destruction of the Palestinians as a whole or in part.
From the testimony of Prof Pappe (PW8) the Prosecution had shown that before 1948, before UN Resolution 47, there was already a plan in place to take over the Palestinian territory, and this plan would be activated the moment the British relinquished its mandate over the territory.
At that point in time, the Palestinians were on 94% of the land, with the Jewish population settling over a mere 6% of the land. Under the UN partition plan, more than 50% of the land was to be given to the Jews.
Plan Dalet might not legally be genocidal in form at its inception, but as it took shape the ethnic cleansing metamorphised into killing, massacre and creating impossible conditions for life for the Palestinians – either they leave or they die. The Prosecution submits this is genocide within the meaning of Article 2 of the Genocide Convention.
On Sabra and Shatila, prosecution witnesses (PW1 and PW6) had testified that the Palestinian refugees in those camps had been killed by the Phalangists, aided and abetted by the Israelis who were in complete control of the two camps.
According to the Kahan Report, all of Beirut was under Israeli control, and there was clear symbiotic relationship between Israel and the Christian forces (the Lebanese Maronite Christian militia or the Phalangists or Keta’ib).
On Operation Cast Lead in 2008, the Chief Prosecutor said that the Israeli Defence Force had used all kinds of weapons, including white phosphorus – which is an incendiary weapon. The use of incendiary weapons is prohibited under Protocal III on the Prohibitions or Restrictions on the Use of Incendiary Weapons.
As a result of the Israeli occupation of Gaza, nowhere in Gaza is safe for civilians. 1.5 million Palestinians are now trapped in despair, their fragile economy ruined. Under the Dahiya Doctrine (October 2008), the complete destruction of Gaza is the ultimate objective, the whole place must be flattened.
The Prosecution submits that the cumulative effect of the actions taken by the Israeli government, as shown by the Prosecution witnesses and the several documents tendered to the Tribunal, have shown beyond reasonable doubt that Israel is guilty of the crime of genocide under the Genocide Convention and the Charter of the Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Commission (The Charter).
Co-Prosecutor Tan Sri Abdul Aziz, submitting on the first charge against Amos Yaron, said that Amos Yaron was the commanding officer in charge of the Israeli Defence Force, in charge of the area of Beirut, and camps Sabra and Shatila. He said there were two issues which he has to deal with – first, whether or not there was a large scale massacre of the 10 residents of the two camps, and second, whether or not Amos Yaron facilitated and permitted such massacre, in violation of international law and Articles 9, 10 and 11 of the Charter?
On the first issue, he submitted there was a large scale massacre, as testified by PW1. She was there, and she saw the massacre with her own eyes. There was corrobating testimony by PW6, and further acknowledged in the Kahan Report.
On the second issue, Amos Yaron was in charge, to ensure that there would be peace and law and order. The Kahan Report itself concluded that anybody who knew about Lebanon would know that by releasing the Phalangists into Beirut, there would be massacre. Surely, Amos Yaron, the General in charge, must have known that by allowing the Phalangists to go into the two camps, the massacre would take place. But he decided to do nothing.
He received the reports of the killing of women and children, but he did not check the report. He did not pass the report to his superiors. The co-prosecutor submits that by ignoring all this despite knowing the circumstances, he himself had the intention of causing the death of the people in the two camps.
10.3 Commission’s Register of War Criminals
Further, under Article 35 of the same Chapter, this Tribunal recommends to the Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Commission that the names of the two convicted parties herein be entered and included in the Commission’s Register of War Criminals and be publicised accordingly.
10.4 The Tribunal recommends to the War Crimes Commission to give the widest international publicity to this conviction and grant of reparations, as these are universal crimes for which there is a responsibility upon nations to institute prosecutions.
10.5 The Tribunal deplores the failure of international institutions to punish the State of Israel for its crimes and its total lack of respect of International Law and the institutions of the United Nations. It urges the Commission to use all means to publicise this judgement and in particular with respect to the Parliaments and Legislative Assemblies of the major powers such as members of the G8 and to urge these countries to intervene and put an end to the colonialist and racist policies of the State of Israel and its supporters.
By Mick Meaney
26/04/08 « RINF » — — The former Prime Minister of Malaysia, Mahathir Mohamad, has echoed calls for Western leaders to be charged with war crimes over the illegal invasion of Iraq.
Speaking at Imperial College in London Mahathir, who was in office from 1981 to 2003, singled out US President George Bush, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair and Australia’s former prime minister John Howard as he wants to see them tried “in absence for war crimes committed in Iraq”.
The event was organised by the Ramadhan Foundation which is a leading British Muslim youth organisation working for peaceful co-existence and dialogue between communities.
Mohammed Shafiq, spokesman for the group said: “It was an opportunity for students to put a range of questions about war crimes and the international situation. He said that people have to stop killing each other and use arbitration, negotiation and discussion as an alternative to violence, war and killing.”
Speaking about the Iraq war, Mahathir focused on “the thousands dying, the economic war, the power of oil and how we could utilise some of these tools to have a leverage against the people who commit countries to war”, Shafiq said.
The event was incredibly well attended with over 450 people and 200 more had to be turned away.
Among the mountain of war crimes Western leaders are guilty of include:-
The illegal use of napalm and other chemical weapons
Intentionally torturing and abusing detainees
Blocking aid convoys
Killing unarmed civilians, including shooting into family homes
Western leaders are also guilty of many other violations of the Geneva Convention, the Charter of the United Nations, the Nuremberg Charter, International Law and the Constitution of the United States, including crimes against peace and crimes against humanity.
International law professors have called the attack against Iraq “a fundamental breach of international law (that) would seriously threaten the integrity of the international legal order that has been in place since the end of the Second World War.”
Mahathir Mohamad’s statement appears to be valid as the International Criminal Court defines the following as international crimes:
(a) Crimes against Peace:
Namely, planning, preparation, initiation or waging of a war of aggression, or a war in violation of international treaties, agreements or assurances, or participation in a common plan or conspiracy for the accomplishment of any of the foregoing:
(b) War Crimes:
Namely, violations of the laws or customs of war. Such violations include, but not be limited to, murder, ill-treatment or deportation to slave labor or for any other purpose of civilian population of or in occupied territory, murder or ill-treatment of prisoners of war or persons on the seas, killing of hostages, plunder of public or private property, wanton destruction of cities, towns or villages, or devastation not justified by military necessity:
(c) Crimes against Humanity:
Namely, murder, extermination, enslavement, deportation, and other inhumane acts committed against any civilian population, before or during the war, or persecutions on political, racial or religious grounds in execution of or in connection with any crime within the jurisdiction of the Tribunal, whether or not in violation of the domestic law of the country where perpetrated.
